The Giving Practice created a tool to simplify your board’s first conversation on impact investing. The tool helps foundations and boards gain impact investing knowledge by scanning examples, learning from other foundations and assessing different approaches, as well as gaging the board’s appetite to learn more. The guide features “investment example cards,” which board members draw at random to learn about real impact investment strategies other foundations are using. As they discuss each example, trustees can see the basic concepts of impact investing without drowning in technical detail. Use our Impact Investing tool to discuss impact investing with your own organization.
Pretty Good Tools are created by The Giving Practice consultants for practitioners in philanthropy, based on our consulting engagements.
